Wildtree Freezer Meal Flyer

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mary Ellen @ 1:26 pm

Hi Everyone and thanks for your interest in Wildtree and the Freezer Meal plans.  The freezer meal plan idea is what got me into Wildtree because you get great natural products with a PLAN to use them.

Here is the flyer.  Each bundle of ingredients is $78 which includes all taxes and shipping.  It is a flat fee for the 7 products that come with each plan.  Each plan makes 10 meals.  You will have tons of product leftover after making the meals as well.  I have a lot of roasted garlic grapeseed oil left after I completed the Everyday Meals plan.

The workshop is hosted by yourself.  You collect the orders for the bundles.  I will email everyone a list of ingredients to buy which includes the meat, some veggies and bags.  Those are prepped at each persons house.  On the day of the party, everyone brings their bags of chicken, steak, etc. and we add our Wildtree ingredients and make our meals!  I provide extra ingredients necessary like eggs, the bag labels, the recipes – everything you need!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies July 3, 2009

Filed under: Recipe — Mary Ellen @ 4:19 am

Throw away all previous recipes for chocolate chip cookies. They are unnecessary after this easy to follow recipe from the one and only Alton Brown.


* 2 sticks unsalted butter
* 2 1/4 cups bread flour
* 1 teaspoon kosher salt
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1/4 cup sugar
* 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
* 1 egg
* 1 egg yolk
* 2 tablespoons milk
* 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Melt the butter in a heavy-bottom medium saucepan over low heat. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda and set aside. You don’t really NEED to sift, but if it floats your boat…

Pour the melted butter in the mixer’s work bowl. Add the sugar and brown sugar. Cream the butter and sugars on medium speed. Add the egg, yolk, 2 tablespoons milk and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Slowly incorporate the flour mixture until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Chill the dough, then scoop onto parchment-lined baking sheets, 6 cookies per sheet. I like to freeze it first, but not necessary – I think it makes a better cookie when you freeze it. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown, checking the cookies after 5 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet for even browning. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.


Starbucks Mocha Frappacinos from Scratch January 26, 2009

Filed under: Recipe — Mary Ellen @ 9:07 pm

I just saved myself like $50 making these delicious things. I used Christmas Starbucks blend coffee and it just tastes just like the real thing. The texture wasn’t exact because I don’t have a commercial blender (who has one of those at home??), but it tastes so good it doesn’t matter. I was out of syrup and used cocoa powder instead and it still tasted GREAT!! Super YUM!
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 tbs sugar (or use equivalent in sweetener)
1/3 cup strong coffee
1 cup ice


Combine all ingredients, except ice– in blender, whirl until sugar is dissolved– add ice and blend until smooth. If the consistency is too smooth, add some more ice.


Blueberry Cream Cheese Cupcakes, and others

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mary Ellen @ 9:04 pm

So blueberry cream cheese cupcakes sounds good, right? Not if you use the recipe from Deceptively Delicious! It looks so disgusting – like a chunk of moldy bread. The taste is super bland and texture alien.

I also tried making the Chicken Nuggets and Mozz Sticks. The chicken nuggets were good and worth it, but they bake faster and better than frying. The Mozz Sticks recipe makes WAY too much breading and doesn’t taste that great. They were difficult to fry as well because they don’t stick together well. Here is a picture.

Birthdays and Christmas and New Years January 1, 2009

Filed under: Maddox — Mary Ellen @ 9:39 pm

Maddox’s 2nd birthday was Dec. 24th.  Here are some photos of him opening his presents.  On Christmas, he spent more time playing with the scotch tape than the large Tonka truck sitting next to him.

On New Years, I tried Alton Brown’s pancake mix one more time without trying to make it healthy with applesauce and junk.  It was the BEST pancake mix EVER.   William ate half of his chocolate chip pancake before I could get in a picture.  Yes, the photo  is only HALF the pancake and there are two stacked on top of each other.  Needless to say, we didn’t have much of a lunch later 🙂
